    Q1 2012: Global: Samsung 1st, Apple 2nd, Nokia 3rd.




    According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, global smartphone shipments grew 41 percent annually to reach 145 million units in the first quarter of 2012. Samsung and Apple together captured more than half of global smartphone shipments for the first time ever.

    Alex Spektor, Associate Director at Strategy Analytics, said, “Global smartphone shipments grew 41 percent annually to reach 145.3 million units in Q1 2012. Samsung overtook Apple to become the world’s largest smartphone vendor by volume with a record 31 percent market share. Samsung’s global smartphone shipments rose 253 percent annually to 44.5 million units, as demand surged for its popular Galaxy models such as the Note, S2 and Y.”

    Neil Mawston, Executive Director at Strategy Analytics, added, “Apple shipped 35.1 million smartphones worldwide and captured 24 percent marketshare, as volumes strengthened in key countries such as China, United States and Japan. Samsung and Apple combined now account for more than half of global smartphone shipments for the first time ever. Samsung and Apple are outcompeting most of their major rivals and the smartphone market is at risk of becoming a two-horse race.”

    Tom Kang, Director at Strategy Analytics, added, “Nokia maintained its position as the world’s third largest smartphone player, but its global share fell from 23 percent in Q1 2011 to just 8 percent in Q1 2012. This is Nokia’s lowest marketshare level in the smartphone category since 2002. Nokia’s new Microsoft Lumia portfolio has recently gotten off to an encouraging start in the critical United States market, but shipments there are not yet large enough to offset the firm’s tumbling Symbian volumes in the rest of the world.”

    Hm,

    This link says Apple is number 1 in the smartphone market.

    Samsung Overtakes Nokia for Cellphone Lead - The Mobile & Wireless Communications portal at IHS iSuppli® provides mobile industry news in addition to updates with the most recent mobile trends. at iSuppli

    It's all a guessing game with Samsung because they don't give out sales info. It's interesting that every quarter Apple gives very good data on how many products they sell, etc. But, Samsung does not. What are they trying to hide?

    iSupply has two charts the first one includes smartphones and features phones(and mid- range smartphones) the second one is just smartphones.

    Apple has the same amount on both charts,because Apple doesn´t have features phones or mid range smartphones, but Samsung, Nokia , RIM and LG have higher units shipments on the first chart and lower on the second chart just for smartphones.

    What I was pointing out is that iSuppli and Strategy Analytics are showing a 12 million total descrepancy between what they think Samsung shipped with smartphones and smartphones ONLY.

    Strategy Analytics Samsung smartphone ONLY sales 44.5 million

    iSuppli Samsung smartphones ONLY sales 32 million

    See the difference?
